Laser Hair Removal Conveniently located to serve Greater Chicago Area and Cook County
Laser Hair Removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States and can be done for you by Dr. Lee at his Chicago practice. Laser Hair Removal uses a technique that beams concentrated light into the hair follicles. The light is then absorbed by the pigment in the follicles, which destroys the hair.
What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal can remove hair from the bikini line, underarm, legs, face and many other places on the body. There are many benefits of laser hair removal, including precision and speed.
With precision, the laser targets the hair, but it does not damage the surrounding skin. One pulse of the laser only takes a fraction of a second, and many hairs can be treated at just one time. An area that is the size of a quarter can be treated in just one second. The upper lip and other small areas of the body can be treated in just one minute. Larger areas of the body may take up to an hour.
How do I prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is a medical procedure, and like all other medical procedures, it requires the proper training. You should check to make sure that your technician or doctor is qualified to perform this procedure. You should avoid electrolysis, plucking or waxing six weeks before undergoing laser hair removal. Patients should also limit sun exposure.
What should I expect during a Laser Hair Removal procedure?
The hair in the treatment area will be trimmed prior to performing Laser Hair Removal. Dr. Lee may also use a special cooling device. After that, the laser will be applied to the area. You will be given anti-inflammatory lotions, creams and/or cold packs to ease the pain. You can schedule your next treatment within four to six weeks. You will have to get treatments until the hair in the area stops growing.
